Great fast business lunch

There's a option for a fast business lunch with a set menu enabling either a selection of entree, main or desert. The service was quick, the food was great and the portions were about right for lunch. Great value for money business lunch in the heart of the Paris end of Collins Street.

Like one of the other reviewers, we ended up here for breakfast because it was the first stop in the Queenies Breakfast walking tour. As a general rule we avoid hotel dining rooms, but the link to thehighly rated Sydney offering made this one interesting. The service was excellent, the menu was interesting, the coffee was good and the food... More

My Mother and I booked a couple of month's ago having heard so many good things about this restaurant and we were left incredibly dissapointed! Service was slack and incredibly patronising, Steak was well below par and overpriced! I also hate it when you go somewhere and there is a very limited wine selection "By the glass", there were only... More

We stayed at the Sofitel and couldn't get a reservation at the hotel's in-house restaurant. Lucky for us! We had a fabulous evening at this restaurant. There's a great vibe here among the staff. I have a disability and was having my partner cut up my meal. When the wait staff saw this they offered to have the chef do... More

I happily ate here last night and I returned again tonight - I had to have more of the menu! The food was excellent last night - and pretty good tonight - except for the uncharacteristically fatty piece of wagyu (and I don't mean the normal marbling - I received a very small amount of meat with my fat, rather...

The restaurant is tucked away off the motor lobby of the Sofitel Melbourne. It is a modern restaurant with very basic bistro style interior. However, the food is modern in texture, execution and style. Food is simple but beautifully cooked to perfection. There are many home made desserts on the menu. Service was brilliant and we struck up a wonderful... More

After a bit if a struggle finding Pei Modern, we were delighted with the experience. On a table of 7, it was hard to converse with those at the other end and to hear the lovely waitress describe the specials. We decided to order a wide selection and then share. There were some very special morsels! Especially the smoked trout,... More

Recommended by friends but I found it overrated.. The cod and duck were just average in taste and presentation as found in any hotel restaurant. Service was atrocious considering the lunch crowd wasn't packing it to capacity. This place needs a manager to oversee servers to ensure timely delivery of dishes.

I just decided to go there because it was convenient as I was staying at the Sofitel nearby and I was tired. It ended up quite an enjoyable evening. First they have a great choice of sherries, and I love sherries. I picked Amontillado as a start,band later am Oloroso with my cheese and both were very good. Some beautiful... More
